Hospice and Palliative Care of the Piedmont (HPCP) is excited to announce that our Medical Director, Nancy Hart Wicker, is Hospice Medical Director Certified.
The Hospice Medical Director Certification Board® (HMDCB®) completed its sixth examination of hospice medical directors and hospice physicians. The 2019 examination certified 165 hospice physicians nationwide.
Since 2014, HMDCB has proudly awarded the Hospice Medical Director Certified® (HMDC®) credential to only 1,113 hospice physicians who have chosen to demonstrate their knowledge and skills in hospice medicine. The examination covers five main topic areas: patient and family care, medical knowledge, medical leadership and communication, professionalism, and systems-based practice.
“We would like to congratulate Dr. Wicker on achieving the HMDC credential. This accomplishment highlights her knowledge base and competency in serving hospice patients and their families”, says Nancy Corley, HPCP CEO.
